Blossom Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I drove in from Asheville NC to have Valentine's Day dinner at Blossom. The freshness of their seafood, the wonderful Charleston atmosphere and the location in the historic district make this one of our Go-To places whenever we visit. Highly recommended!
Great Food! Great environment! Very friendly staff! This was our first trip to Charleston and our first visit to Blossom. Blossom was on our list of must eats. It did not disappoint at all! We will definitely visit again.
The staff was most kind, welcoming, and accommodating. We were a little late for our reservation. I was on edge. They treated us so well! The waiter - Cooper - was great! We had a member of our party who had special needs. He made sure our friend received excellent attention and received food and service that met his needs.
We were seated outside. The reason for our visit was to remember a friend who first brought us to Blossom years ago - a friend who recently passed. It was easy to hear as we shared stories of our dear friend.
First time at Blossom and enjoyed it very much. We had a drink at the bar first and both bartenders recommended sea scallops as a main course as did our waitress. Always trust the staff! I had a crab cake to start -very good with succotash - and the scallops which were fabulous. Hubby had soup and the flounder and he enjoyed both. Chelsea was very pleasant. We will be back on our next visit; the menu had lots of seafood options that looked delicious.
I'm have mixed feelings on Blossoms. The restaurant was very nice and the staff was extremely friendly. They definitely get a 10 on that. Our food was kinda was a miss. We ordered the crab and artichoke dip for an appetizer. It was a large serving but had very little crab and tasted mostly like mayo and cheese. A smaller portion with more crab would be better. Also it was served with sliced soft bread which you couldn't use to "dip". My main dish was the scallops with shrimp and grits. The scallops were amazing, cooked perfectly. However my shrimp was pretty much raw. I was afraid to eat those. My husband had the market catch (Triggerfish) and it was just ok. I had high expectations for Blossoms because we love Magnolias (same ownership). Unfortunately I don't think we will return.
Went to Blossom for family gathering...great place. Our server was attentive, food was delicious and dishes creative. I had the catfish with grits and beans...and the grits were the best I've ever had! Portion sizes are good, not too small or too large. If you want great fine Low Country cuisine, go to Blossom!
We usually dine at Magnolias, which is Outstanding always, but Blossom is also handicapped accessible and owned by the same group with good parking nearby. We were greeted with a very friendly staff, seated at a table where my walker could be out of the way and we had an excellent waiter, Mark, who was attentive and helpful without being cloying. We had the buttermilk fried artichokes, which were good and a large enough serving to share and I had blue crab ravioli with a delicious creamy sauce. As an older diner,, the portions were large and I couldn’t finish either portion. My husband ordered the seared tuna but ordered it medium which was over cooked. He admitted it was his fault and will have it seared next time!
All in all, this was a great dining experience with too much food and a mis-ordered tuna.
We had a quick meal here before a ghost tour of downtown Charleston. We started with the She Crab soup which was very good. My wife's tuna dish was outstanding. My fried oysters were good, not exceptional in any way. I probably ordered poorly. The cocktails we had were also very good. Our server was excellent and I'd definitely try this again and order from their more specialized dishes.
